I have an Atkins 10" backsaw with an apple handle, brass hardware,
and steel spine. I just ran out to my shop to confirm: no markings
on the spine, and I'm pretty certain it's original, as my saw looked
as if it had been ruined on a nail and then put away for 80 years.
Nice find! I inherited some Atkins saws from my grandpa, and they're
good saws, but the etches are very light.
